Hi guys,
I'm about to make a choice for my career and I want to know your opinion about it.
I just graduated CS in Romania and I now have 2 distinct employment possibilities:
1. Junior Java Developer- one of the clasic paths for the fresh CS graduates
2. Junior Cobol Developer- a more risky but interesting (for me)choice
I need to know more about job opportunities and /or possibilities for MS or MIS in the US--for the long term.
I know enough to start working in any of this 2 and my only concern is the issue mentioned above.
Thanks

Most companies that I know that use Cobol are moving towards Java.

I'd guess that being, strictly a Java developer would be much more ideal in America, though I do not know about anywhere else.

Then again if you want to companies migrating from Cobol to Java you would probably be an ideal candidate. Just a possibility.

Cobol will give you a stable career you can stick around in without learning anything else until you retire.

Seriously?
